A bomb squad was called to an attorney's office in Florida, after someone at the firm called the sheriff's office to learn what should be done about the two grenades they found in a client's home. One of the firm's clients was a World War II veteran and owned two grenades. A person who worked at the office found the grenades in the clients homes after he passed away. He decided to bring the grenades to the firm in Lake Worth, Florida. The sheriff's office contends that if anyone has a military-grade explosive device in their possession, like a grenade, then that person should contact their local authorities for help to dispose of the device.
